HC & S Co Pau

After 115 years of producing sugar on Maui, the Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Company (HC & S C0) is no more. This was the last sugar mill anywhere in Hawaii; a way of life gone. There is an excellent museum on the property that has captured a little of the history (and much of the emotion of the closing). Maui can’t afford to lose 650 jobs…but they have.

    That’s a lot of jobs on a small island. Is this C&H, the ‘pure cane sugar from Hawaii’ that we were raised on??
